Good Question: How To Clean My Electric Stove?

Pin it button big

Dear Kitchen Readers,

I renovated my kitchen eighteen months ago. While the rest of my kitchen is still almost as clean as when it was installed, the top of my Kenmore Elite electric stove from Sears has become a dirt magnet.

It is difficult and time consuming to clean and is starting to show some scratches. Spring Cleaning Month seems like a good time to get some help with this: how can I keep the glass-ceramic top of my stove clean?

Thanks,
Chris from AT:Kitchen

Please post your suggestions in the comment section. If you have a similar stove with a similar problem, let us know that too.

So far I've tried special cleaners, sponges, and even the magic eraser.

My apartment building does not have a gas hook-up, so switching to a gas stove is not an option for me. Besides, we try to stick-up for electric stoves around here. Huge, high-end gas stoves might look great on TV, but they aren't a requirement for cooking well at home.
